As Atletico Madrid prepares to host Osasuna in their penultimate La Liga match on Sunday evening, all eyes are on Diego Simeone's squad to see if they can extend their winning streak to five matches.

This preview delves into the form, team news, and potential lineups, culminating in a prediction for the highly anticipated clash.

Current Form

Atletico

Atletico Madrid are currently fourth in the La Liga table, having secured a spot in next season's Champions League.

With 73 points, they trail third-placed Girona by just two points, making a top-three finish a tangible goal.

The team has been impressive lately, with four consecutive league victories against Athletic Bilbao, Mallorca, Celta Vigo, and Getafe.

Their only recent setback was a 2-0 loss to Alaves. At home, Atletico boasts the second-best record in La Liga this season, garnering 49 points from 18 matches and achieving 16 wins.

Osasuna

In contrast, Osasuna sits in 13th place with 41 points from 36 matches.

They are on a six-game winless streak, with their latest results being draws against Athletic Bilbao and Mallorca.

Jagoba Arrasate's team has struggled recently, securing only one victory in their last nine league games.

Despite this, Osasuna can still finish as high as 10th in the league, although they could also drop closer to the relegation zone.

Team News

Atletico

Team news reveals that Atletico will miss Nahuel Molina, Thomas Lemar, and Marcos Paulo due to injuries.

However, the rest of the squad is fit, with Saul Niguez potentially returning to the starting lineup.

Antoine Griezmann, fresh off a hat-trick, is expected to lead the attack alongside Angel Correa.
